After the captain of the Filipino ship that allegedly rammed by a Chinese Vessel on June 12 declined to have a meeting with President Rodrigo Duterte, F/B Gem-Ver, Junel Insigne decided to instead meet the representatives from the Office of the Vice President (OVP)
In the photos posted by NEWS5, it showed Insigne talking to some of the staff of the OVP, talking about the incident that put the 22 Filipino fishermen in danger.
The OVP staff also asked Insigne on how they could help the fishermen to recover from the incident.
As of writing, the result of the talk between the OVP and Insigne is not yet disclosed.
It was also reported that Vice President Leni Robredo herself would go to Mindoro to talk to Insigne. However, it’s not yet known if the meeting has been pushed through.
Yesterday, the wife of Junel, Lani Insigne, said that she convinced her husband not to meet the President anymore because of their disappointment over the statement of some of his cabinet officials.
They even demanded Duterte to visit Mindoro personally if he wanted to talk with the fishermen.
“Wala ring mangyayari sa kanya doon, anong gagawin niya doon? Katulad niyan binalita na wala naman magaganap na pag pupulong, anong gagawin niya doon?” Mrs. Insigne said.
Malacanang is not yet releasing a statement on the recent decision of Insigne to not meet with the President.
